The Tokyo Metropolitan task force requested Tokyo 2020 not to stage the Olympic Torch Relay on public roads and to hold Celebration events. As such, Tokyo 2020 will implement an alternative lighting ceremony format whereby each torchbearer will pass the Olympic flame to the next torchbearer at a “torch kiss” point at the Celebration venues on those days as follows:

Day 13 – Wednesday 21 July
Venue: Shinagawa Central Park
Time: 13:55-18:23 (TBC)

Day 14 – Thursday 22 July
Venue: Shiba Park
Time: 13:55-19:13 (TBC)

Its a shame the torch relay was so screwed by the Pandemic. A lot of cities like Fukuoka had to cancel their torch events as well...I wonder if this whole mess will also have an impact in future torch relays. Perhaps it would be smart for Paris to simplify it and reduce its scale.

Don't forget Beijing and Hangzhou too.
